Improve performance while maintaining positive relationships with your team.
Designed for hospitality leaders no matter how senior they are. It is not a course specifically for supervisors, it is a course in the art of supervision. It is designed to teach you how to get what you want, when you want it, to the standard you want from the people around you — without conflict, resentment or argument.
Deliver training that gets results.
Designed by us for anybody in a hospitality environment who has the responsibility for training new or existing staff, or the responsibility for overseeing subordinates who train staff. This industry specific course shows you how to plan and conduct the three main types of training necessary for the smooth running of your hospitality business: induction and orientation training, technical skills training and behavioral skills training.
How to attract stable staff and reduce staff turnover in a difficult job market.
This training course is designed to show you how to attract quality hospitality staff in today’s very difficult job market and how to reduce your staff turnover. One of the main causes of staff turnover is poor recruiting — especially among part-time and casual staff. Stable, reliable, committed staff can be found if you know how and where to look. We consider this to be the single most important of all the skills we teach — your business is only as good as the people you have chosen to run it.
How to bring in more money, spend less and control your costs.
This course is for Owners/Managers of hospitality, food and beverage businesses who wish to improve their ability to generate and control profitability, or who want to learn what options they have to address specific problems in cost areas of their business.
How to systemise your kitchen to better control food costs.
This course is for Head Chefs, Sous Chefs, Kitchen Managers, Food and Beverage Managers and Business Owners. It’s one thing telling your Chef that your food costs are too high, but does he or she have the skills and knowledge to isolate where the specific causes of the cost blow-outs are? The course will give participants the skills to control and reduce food costs in your kitchen.
How to develop, motivate and control your team; creating a self-controlling workforce.
This course is designed for experienced Owners and Managers who have larger teams. It is an extension of the Hospitality Supervisor, and deals with group or team productivity, as distinct from individual productivity.
How to get customers to buy more while they’re in your venue.
Increasing your average spend is the most effective way to increase your profits because add-on sales come without a proportional labour cost and most of the money goes to your bottom line.
This course is designed for senior staff, trainers, supervisors, managers and business owners, and has been carefully designed to show you how to increase the amount of money people spend while they are present in your business.
